Download from CTAN, install and use package movie15. Works like a charm.
Be aware that you need to use acroread (Adobe Reader) to present
beamer and acroread itseld does not play movies but calls the player,
so you need to have the player installed and acroread (or OS) to know
whom to call (probably everything is configured already). In this and
pdftex mailing list you can find other discussions about this.

This is a general mailing list and there is no support manager (or
everyone including you is)
